Celebrate your birthday at the Silver Beach Carousel!

Looking for the perfect place to make memories on your child’s birthday? There is no place more perfect than where hundreds of visitors come daily for a smile, laugh and ride. Invite your friends and family to the Silver Beach Carousel, where you can rent out the Carousel House for a private event!

Choose your party package

We offer two party options, both of which include two-hour rentals with up to an hour of riding time. Think of how many different Carousel figures you and your group will get to meet in that time! The rest of the time will be used for other party activities. You’ll get access to start setting up 30 minutes prior to your party start time, and you’ll have the place for 30 minutes after your party ends to clean up the festivities. Tables and chairs will be set up beforehand, too! Please make sure you have enough adults (16 & older) to ride with any guests who are under 42” tall.


Activities Room Birthday Party Package

These party slots are when the Carousel is open to the public including up to an hour of riding and time for other party activities. All birthday party guests will receive a wristband to be identified from other Carousel guests using tokens to ride.

Cost: $300 for up to 32 people


Private Carousel Birthday Party Package

You can reserve the Carousel for these parties when it is closed to the public. You’ll have the whole Carousel House to yourself!

Cost: $400 for up to 50 people
